Yes, we’d love you to stay with us! However, because of Spanish law, we do have a few rules we have to stick to:

2) People under the age of 18 are not allowed to stay in the shared dormitories (even accompanied by adults)

3) People under the age of 18 need to book the whole room just for you and your companions as a private room.
